Are Nicotine Pouches Safe?

What Are Nicotine Pouches?

Nicotine pouches are white pre-portioned pouches containing either tobacco derived nicotine or synthetic nicotine, but no tobacco leaf, dust, or stem, and are described as either similar to or a tobacco-free version of snus. 


What’s in a Nicotine Pouch?

The main ingredients are nicotine, water, flavorings, sweeteners, and plant-based-based fibers.


Are Nicotine Pouches a Safer Approach?

There is no evidence that nicotine pouches are a safe or effective approach to smoking cessation. Unlike snus, nicotine pouches contain no trace of tobacco. The nicotine pouches are made from natural fibers and flavors. Compared to snus and smokeless tobacco products, nicotine pouches may be preferable, considering the consequences tobacco products are related to :

Cancers of the mouth, throat, and pancreas

Gum disease

Tooth Loss

Cavities and stained teeth

Higher chances of heart disease and stroke


What Are the Benefits of Nicotine Pouches?

Anytime Anywhere 100% Tobacco Free

Nicotine pouches are particularly discreet because they generate no smoke or vapour and can be used anywhere - at home, at work, or on the go - and you don't have to get frowned upon or in the worst case, banned outright. EGP is discreet and convenient to use. Just pop the small and thin pouch under your lip and you’ll have a steady delivery of nicotine within a few minutes. Use it at work, on long journeys or at home or wherever you want and on your own terms.


Reduction of known risks related to smoking

According to the Ministry of Health, cigarettes are responsible for one third of cancers, the majority of which affect the lungs. Smoking also promotes the development of cardiovascular diseases (especially myocardial infarction) and chronic respiratory diseases. As nicotine pouches are tobacco-free, they diffuse nicotine and aromas orally, thus protecting your lungs at all times from inhaling toxic substances.


Environmental Friendly

Tobacco growing and curing can have environmental consequences including loss of biodiversity, degradation and soil erosion. However, nicotine pouches are smoke-free and they do not contribute to air pollution when used.


Nicotine pouches are also spit-free and easily discarded in the product’s catch-lid compartment. Users are able to discard each pouch responsibly, whereas cigarette butts are often thrown out a window or smashed into the ground.
